    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UM (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Fairly straight forward. They asked questions about my prior history in advertising and finance along with an assessment test on variances and excel models. Both interviewers were lovely and they gave me adequate time for the test along with a good Q & A on the role and company.

    Assistant Media Planner - Digital Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UM (Detroit, MI).

    Interview

    It was lengthy, I must have interviewed with five different people. Although this is somewhat endemic to the industry, it seems unwarranted the number of people I spoke to that I no longer ever see or work for.

    Assistant Media Buyer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UM (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was a casual conversation. They wanted to know who I was, my experience. Then we just had a conversation that was professional and casual. It was chill and easy. But I guess they needed someone since their department has such a high turnover rate.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UM (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    From first interview to my first day on the job it will be 1 month. Extremely pleasant process with the internal recruiter keeping me up to date throughout. Phone interview with recruiter and first interview with the managers in person. Great conversation on what I can bring to the table. Then a second in person with managers in different areas I would be interacting with. Overall very easy process and great interviews. Couldn't be happier with the process.

    Digital Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at UM.

    Interview

    Went through HR and then met with the hiring manager. It was pretty painless and had basic questions. The hiring manager first asked me for a copy of my resume, and I when I gave it to him he said, "good job, first step over," or something like that.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at UM (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process includes interviews with multiple account managers. The interviews were somewhat laid back and most of the questions were about myself and my interests rather than my previous work experience. The interviewers were interested in finding interns that best fit the culture and work ethic of their specific accounts.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain why you think you would be a good fit for this account?   Answer Question

    Digital Media Planner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UM (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for a Digital Media Planner position via LinkedIn on 12/3/15. I was contacted the next day 12/4/15 by Jessica Rigby from Talent Acquisition. We scheduled a phone screen for 12/8/15 to discuss my background/experience. I reached out a week later via email to follow up on the status of my application. Jessica scheduled an in-person interview for me with 2 people on the J3 account on 12/18/16. It turns out the interview had nothing to do with the position I applied for. We discussed afterward and I mentioned this. Fast forward to 1/4/16, Jessica contacted me to meet with the BMW Mini team and I was glad because I was very excited about the opportunity. We made sure to schedule a time that worked with the VP. The day of the interview, I showed up and it turns out the VP wasn't even there. A few employees tried to help me meet someone else on the team. The meeting didn't last very long but I was hopeful that I would hear back from HR to reschedule to meet with the VP. I never heard back. I didn't receive an apology from HR nor the BMW Mini team for wasting my time and because of that I never reached out. It's highly unprofessional to treat potential candidates this way; it says a lot about the company overall.
